Birger Sjöbergs bilder och Tegnérs

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The metaphors in the works of Birger Sjöberg is compared to those of Esaias Tegnér. The comparison is made in the theoretical frame of Riffaterre´s concept of hypogram (clichés, descriptive system) and the tradition of domesticating metaphors. Sjöberg is clearly developing Tegnér's metaphorical technique, thus shaping new ways of expressing the depths of mans psyche and his fate, understood within the frame of traditional idealism and psychoanalysis.
